Have eaten here several times and the food has been good each time. We like the entertainment of the cooking right at the table and so it is a great place to go with other couples or families and friends. If it is a special occassion they make it memorable.

The most recent visit the person cooking for us was not on the same game as what we have experienced in the past. It was a Friday night too. We were two couples and got seated with a family that had a small child and that too was unfortunate as it was our night out without kids. (We love our kids but hey it was out night out.) The cook mixed up a few dishes and the entertainment factor was way down.

We will go again and hope for the experinece to be better as it has been in the past! They run great specials so search for a coupon or check the mail!

A group of 17 of us went for a 17th birthday dinner. We specifically chose 6:00 pm on a Sunday night thinking we had no chance of being rushed. The place was very slow at this time. The food was very good. The Chef's did an outstanding job of entertaining and keeping everyone's order straight. The manager had an attitude problem though. While waiting for our group to arrive I ordered a beer at the bar. He had the gall to ask me if he can keep the change. Then when we were seated and looking over the menu he comes to our tables and says, "you have to order quicker because there is a group coming behind us." We found out there never was anyone else reserved after us. Overall it was a fun and entertaining evening. The only problem was the rudeness of the manager. For that reason I won't go back. There are plenty of nice restaurants to chose from where your business is appreciated.

First, service in the bar was terribly slow - and there were only about 8 of us in the bar area. Once we were served, 2 of 5 drinks were wrong drinks. The food was pretty good and fun to watch our chef prepare it in front of us. Sushi was just ok, slightly dry and might not have been absolutely fresh. Prices for food and drinks seemed a bit high for average food and somewhat small portions.

We just love the teppanyaki room & its amazing food. It's fun with a group; even our 3 yr. old had a blast & learned to eat with "rigged" chopsticks!

Our neighbor is a cook here, so we thought we should try it out. So we went for a "date night". We saw our neighbor, but he didn't cook for us. The food was surprisingly good. Very fresh and tasty, and the cook was entertaining. We shared the steak/shrimp/lobster for 2 and had leftovers for 3 other servings. I didn't care for the ginger sauce, but the rest of the food was very good. We plan to go back again this week and take his dad.
